The basis for the blockbuster motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Shutter Island by New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane is a gripping and atmospheric psychological thriller where nothing is quite what it seems. The New York Times calls Shutter Island, “Startlingly original.” The Washington Post raves, “Brilliantly conceived and executed.” A masterwork of suspense and surprise from the author of Mystic River and Gone, Baby, Gone, Shutter Island carries the reader into a nightmare world of madness, mind control, and CIA Cold War paranoia and is unlike anything you’ve ever read before.

4.0 Isolation
I remember seeing the commercials for the movie version of this book when it came out, and thinking it looked interesting - a sort of mystery/thriller thing set on an island against the backdrop of a notorious mental asylum. I never made the time to see the movie though, so when a friend offered to ...

Did not see the huge twist coming at all and that's saying something since I tend to spot these things coming from a mile away. I have nothing more to say about this bo...
